What is an easy exercise I can do in the morning that also involves mediation?
Yoga. The first thing that popped into my mind when I received this question was Sun Salutations. While I love Pilates and I do feel it does provides some form of mediation. I have found not as much so as Yoga will provide. Yoga really is a mind and body experience. I have friends that go a little batty if they go a few days without this form of stress and muscle release. The Sun Salutation is a mixture of a few poses. I suggest starting with just one and working your way up. When I’m staying healthy and focused, I do three Sun Salutations in the morning. This exercise will increase flexibility, calm your mind and tone your body.
After your Sun Salutations, I suggest lying or sitting on the floor and concentrate on your breathing for 5 to 20 minutes...Namaste.
*Sun Salutations are also really helpful while being involved with any body cleanse you may partake in.
